Report: Raiders in hottest pursuit of McNabb

For more than two months, the Eagles played it coy regarding the possibility of trading quarterback Donovan McNabb, hoping for an offer they couldn’t refuse.

And then when the offer never came, they needed a Plan B.

Plan B has unfolded far more haphazardly, with coach Andy Reid publicly acknowledging that offers have been made for McNabb and then smoldering rumors of a trade to the Rams becoming a report from Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer that the trade could happened by the end of the week, if not by the end of the day.

(The Rams strongly denied the report, and McLane has since backed off dramatically.  But the damage may already have been done.  We’re hearing that McLane had been hoping to become the new Eagles beat writer for the Inquirer, replacing Bob Brookover, who now covers the Phillies.  We’re also hearing that the swing and the miss on the McNabb-to-Rams story may have kept that from happening.) 

So if the Rams aren’t doing a deal, which team will?  Jason La Canfora of NFL.com reports that the Raiders are “in heaviest pursuit.”  Other possibilities are the Bills and Cardinals.  (However, one media source with whom we spoke is convinced that Buffalo owner Ralph Wilson would never pay McNabb an eight-figure salary.)

Even though McNabb reportedly prefers Arizona to Buffalo or Oakland, the Raiders have shown that they’re not afraid to trade for a reluctant player with only one year left on his contract.  They did it last year with defensive end Richard Seymour, who now carries the exclusive level of the franchise tag.

So stay tuned.  As explained in the latest edition of PFT Daily, we now think it’s just a matter of time before the Eagles move McNabb.

    where ever McNabb goes, he will make that team better.
    (and by where ever I mean Oakland or St. Louis)

  6. Midway Monster says: Mar 25, 2010 4:06 PM

    JRUSS just coughed up his donut.
    Doesnt ‘Old Al’ know that Vick’s 40 time is still much faster than DMAC?

  7. BroncoBourque says: Mar 25, 2010 4:06 PM

    I hate the Raiders but if the price is anything less than a first round pick this could be a good deal for them. McNabb could be a good mentor for Russell, assuming they are still going to try to salvage the former 1st overall pick. I also think McNabb still has a lot left in the tank, probably at least 5 more productive years so it’s not like this is completely a one year deal. If they can’t get him to sign an extension they can do the same with him as they did with Seymore and slap the franchise tag on him, assuming it still exists in the new CBA.

  8. MiamiMan90 says: Mar 25, 2010 4:07 PM

    Old Ralphie won’t pay McNabb; Old Ralphie doesn’t pay anyone.

  9. Plunketthead says: Mar 25, 2010 4:08 PM

    Sign him up Al!!!
    I bet McNabb is licking at his fat chops to come to Oakland and bring us back to the playoffs.
    Long live Al!!

  10. Atlanta Love says: Mar 25, 2010 4:09 PM

    Of course the Raiders are in hot pursuit. Why wouldn’t they be?

  11. Cleg says: Mar 25, 2010 4:09 PM

    As a Redskin fan and Eagles hater who lives in Philadelphia I can agree with a lot of Eagle fans about moving on from McNabb. In fact, as a Skins fan I prefer they keep him because he chokes in the big game. But, if that organization decides to send McNabb to Oakland after he has given so much to them they are more classless than I even thought they were.

  12. Common Sense says: Mar 25, 2010 4:09 PM

    Quietly the Raiders are having a solid off-season, this would make it very good.

  13. Saintnation says: Mar 25, 2010 4:10 PM

    Donovan….. retire before its too late, you deserve better.

  14. birdmancometh says: Mar 25, 2010 4:10 PM

    Maybe they’ll trade him to Arizona for Anquan Boldin like they did last year…

  15. Jack Acid says: Mar 25, 2010 4:10 PM

    Please God don’t send him to Arizona.

  16. Vince Drooley says: Mar 25, 2010 4:11 PM

    As a Dolphins fan, I am glad that Wilson is such a cheap bastahd. At least there’s one team the Fins will be able to beat in their division next year.

  17. Dogsweat says: Mar 25, 2010 4:12 PM

    J Caca will be gone.

  18. CountSnail says: Mar 25, 2010 4:12 PM

    You would think the Raiders would learn that costly trades for aging veterans do not bulid a good team, but they don’t. It’s sad, really.

    Where do the Raiders keep getting all this money to blow? Javon Walker, all the top 3 draft picks in recent years, Richard Seymour, and so on…

  21. MrSalamander says: Mar 25, 2010 4:14 PM

    Not my money, bring him in, Al. (You jackass!)
    And this time, try not to let your Crack(head) Coaching Staff transform a proven player into yet another also-ran – see Richard Seymour for 1 and a half days on the team vs. Seymour for a week on the team – okay? Kthxbi.

  22. Florio-is-a-tool says: Mar 25, 2010 4:15 PM

    Any idea who the ugliest team is? If the Raider’s are the hottest then McNabb has a lot of problems.

  23. Vikes-N-Favre says: Mar 25, 2010 4:16 PM

    Poor Donavon, I don’t know of one player that actually wants to be a Raider. I’m not even sure if a guy who grew up in California whether that be Oakland or LA and played his whole football career from pee wee to the NFL there would want to play for the Raiders.
    Come on Philly, at least show the guy some respect and trade him to a team that he would actually want to play for. Afterall, he did give you his all for so many years.

  24. tom coughlin's coat holder says: Mar 25, 2010 4:16 PM

    the team will still perform better with gradkowski,all heart,so so skill set,but leaves it all on the field.

  25. JSpicoli says: Mar 25, 2010 4:16 PM

    What i like to hear.
    Nab McNabb Al.

  26. myeaglescantwin says: Mar 25, 2010 4:17 PM

    Good i hope he doesnt get the promotion and that he ruined his own chances makes it great.
    There’s nothin like people screwing themselves over.
    Rams are interested, they just like their spot being blown up like that.
    Its like the popular chick that wants to bang the nerd real bad, but then her friends find out and she gets all pissy.
    I’d love to see Dmac with the Raiders. he can retire to SoCal and just bomb all day to HeywardBey. They’ll draft a WR with jets & they already have a decent running game & defense.
    but really though Raiders suck
    McClain way to shit the bed cool guy. kiss your career goodbye.

  27. SliKRiK says: Mar 25, 2010 4:18 PM

    I’m really hoping this team moves McNabb, he has been a good quarterback for this franchise, but I think its time to move on without him. The Eagle offense has been very predictable with him at the helm. We need a fresh new start with Kevin Kolb. Oh and while their at it, get rid of Scooby Dooby Doo!!! Good bye Mike Vick!

  28. murray22 says: Mar 25, 2010 4:19 PM

    It would be weird seeing McNabb with anyone but the Eagles. He’s been a very good player, but it sounds like the window is closing for him in Philly. Hopefully, he can get traded to a contender. It would be a shame to see him with the Raiders. The Cardinals could definitely use him. If not Arizona, San Fran and Carolina should definitely make a play for him. McNabb would turn either of those teams into a contender.

  29. blacktoothgrin says: Mar 25, 2010 4:19 PM

    What are the gonna give up? They really can’t give up the #8 pick, that’s just crazy as they need that for the O line, cause it won’t matter who is under center if they aren’t protected. Sure Reid wanted the 33rd pick, but what about the 41st pick? I’ll gladly McNabb if it means the end of the Jabustus experiment, however it would make me feel a little bad for Gradkowski after he has worked so hard.

  30. INVAIDUH says: Mar 25, 2010 4:20 PM

    either way… cut JaMarcus

  31. funi says: Mar 25, 2010 4:20 PM

    Who is going to catch a pass from McScrubb? DHB, Louis Murphy? McNabb to AZ with Fitz and Breaston!!

  32. City_Native says: Mar 25, 2010 4:21 PM

    An inaccurate QB . . . behind a line who cant block . . . throwing to receivers who cant catch.
    Makes sense.
    P.S. RaiderRob is a tool.

  35. Johnabis says: Mar 25, 2010 4:28 PM

    its funny how most eagles fan’s want McNabb gone but most fans of other teams would be thrilled to have him.

  36. themage78 says: Mar 25, 2010 4:29 PM

    McNabb goes to a different team not in the NFC East? Happy day for all Giants fans! Lol who’s going to be the QB? Vick the dogkiller?

  37. ForrestGump says: Mar 25, 2010 4:32 PM

    Donovan McNabb & Al Davis??
    That just doesn’t compute.

  38. dcrespo24 says: Mar 25, 2010 4:33 PM

    He would look good in Silver and Black

  39. Bobby Bushay says: Mar 25, 2010 4:33 PM

    McNabb & Eagles 2nd round for Oakland’s 1st rounder and a player.
    Let’s face it… To pay McNabb the greenbacks AND have the 8th pick overall to pay AND all the other low draft choices’ collective $$$ over the last few years… I wouldn’t be surprised to see Oakland depart with the 8th overall selection, but they need to get another choice in return from the Iggles…

  40. REDRUM09 says: Mar 25, 2010 4:34 PM

    Arizona should pursue him and while they’re at it they should shoot for westbrooke as well…hell fuk it .. AZ should shoot for T.O and Asante…

  41. rAiDeR 2 BeGiN wItH says: Mar 25, 2010 4:35 PM

  42. lozmor says: Mar 25, 2010 4:35 PM

    McNabb needs to find a way to stay in Phily for 1 more year then slip into #4′s shoes in Minnesota and play with AP and then win the bowl he wants soooo badly.

    @CountSnail hmm i remember a cast off aging veteran that went to the raiders and totally turned them around. Maybe you have heard of him? Rich Gannon? God i miss those days

  46. MagicMan407 says: Mar 25, 2010 4:38 PM

    I doubt they will give a 1st rounder for Mcnabb. It would be more like a 2nd rounder hes a little old for a 1st round pick. That would be a great day for philly if they can even get a 2nd rounder for Mcnabb.

  47. jimicos says: Mar 25, 2010 4:38 PM

    Rumor has it they sent their 2009 first-round draft pick to Philly to wine and dine McNabb, but he dropped the ball.

  48. Dixon29 says: Mar 25, 2010 4:39 PM

    No way the Raiders are going to have to give up a 1st this year. If he goes to Oakland it will cost them this year’s 2nd, or maybe next year’s 1st.
    This would make the Raiders contenders. I truly believe it. They have the running game, the line is improving, and the wideouts are pretty dangerous. The only things missing are Bruce Cambell from Maryland and Donovan McNabb.

    Is McNabb really worth a 1st rounder? I’m not trying to slam him (I’m really sort of neutral on him), but the raiders have a Top 10 pick. That seems to be a lot to cough up for a player on the back 9 of his career.

  50. bunbun says: Mar 25, 2010 4:44 PM

    Yes Al go get Donovan. Then you can send jive ass punk foooo Jamarkess to birmingham or Ottawa where he can do something

  51. Dogsweat says: Mar 25, 2010 4:45 PM

    AL can redeem himself. Get McNabb.

    What’s right is right.

  52. Beastie Bills says: Mar 25, 2010 4:47 PM

    I’m a huge Bills fan, and a huge McNabb fan…..but the Cardinals need to make this happen. They’d be great.
    It doesn’t make sense for Buffalo to get him. By the time the rest of the team (especially the OLine) stops sucking, McNabb will be ready to retire.

  53. The Money says: Mar 25, 2010 4:50 PM

    McNabb and T.O will be teammates again in Oakland…Gotta love Big AL!!!

  54. dietrich43 says: Mar 25, 2010 4:50 PM

    I feel bad for anyone sent to Oakland.
    Buffalo paid Drew Bledsoe. So, it’s possible they’d shell out the money for McNabb. Doubtful, but possible.
    Arizona would give McNabb the best change to puke at the end of an important game.

  55. Snowplow says: Mar 25, 2010 4:51 PM

  58. dogma1 says: Mar 25, 2010 4:58 PM

    Raiders are a good QB way from being a 10 win team.

  59. Critias says: Mar 25, 2010 4:58 PM

    A contending team wouldn’t NEED a starting QB, so trading McNabb to a contender is not going to happen. The Raiders might actually be a decent fit for McNabb… he’s never been a guy who looked comfortable in the West Coast offense. Those passes he throws into the ground are the short passes that require a deft touch, which he doesn’t possess. He has a strong arm, and Al Davis likes the vertical passing game. I think McNabb could throw for 3500 yards and 20 TDs for the Raiders next year. I’m not suggesting those are Hall of Fame numbers, but they’re certainly better than anyone currently on Oakland’s roster could accomplish.
    Kevin Kolb is a better fit for the Eagles and the offense they like to run, with a short passing game and timed routes. It’s no coincidence that in Kolb’s first two NFL starts, he threw for over 300 yards both times — first player in NFL history to do so. He just natural back there, something McNabb never did, despite the modicum of success that the Eagles enjoyed during his tenure.
    If I am the Raiders, I would offer the Eagles my second round pick and a player — like Kirk Morrison (not sure what his status is as I am typing this) — straight up for McNabb. Philly needs depth at linebacker, and the second round pick would be a high one (8th?). And that’s all she wrote.
    The Eagles will have to draft a developmental QB in this draft — but they’d do that anyway, assuming they traded Vick, too.

  60. JSpicoli says: Mar 25, 2010 4:59 PM

    Schilens and Murphy can catch, FTards. Watch a game instead of NFL live.
    Schilens injury in preseason may have been the worst thing to happen last year.

  61. Tim Tebow's Prayers says: Mar 25, 2010 4:59 PM

    This is going to spiral out of control quickly, just like a large pct. of Donovan McNabb passes.

  62. NfcLeast says: Mar 25, 2010 5:00 PM

    Of course, McLane fell for it. Anyone with half a brain could see Roseman’s been feeding him info/using him for the last 2+ months.

    Swap first rounders for McNabb. Seems fair.
    If the Raiders pull this off, you guys won’t be able to make fun of them on every other post.

  66. FumbleNuts says: Mar 25, 2010 5:03 PM

    If Al Davis has ANY sense at all…………. He will go get McNabb and not look back.

  67. Matts13 says: Mar 25, 2010 5:06 PM

    Why aren’t the Browns in the picture? Oh yeahwe signed Delhomme and traded for Seneca we’re all set.
    McNabb is worth 4 first round picks (in the terms of Oakland 1st round picks)

  68. Raider B says: Mar 25, 2010 5:07 PM

    Even though McNabb reportedly prefers Arizona to Buffalo or Oakland, the Raiders have shown that they’re not afraid to trade for a reluctant player with only one year left on his contract. They did it last year with defensive end Richard Seymour, who now carries the exclusive level of the franchise tag.
    Theyre you go making ish up again. Seymour was never reluctant to be a raider. There’s numerous reports of him saying hes in hopes of making a long term deal with the raiders. And he was never reluctant of being a Raider and hes proud to wear Silver and Black.
    Get your facts straight!

    Thank you for the “hater map” that we all know most haters would employ.
    If McNabb stays – good! He sucks! If he’s traded – Ah! Look how classless the Eagles are for not holding on to such a GREAT QB.

    “As a Redskin fan and Eagles hater who lives in Philadelphia I can agree with a lot of Eagle fans about moving on from McNabb. In fact, as a Skins fan I prefer they keep him because he chokes in the big game.”
    - wow are you ignorant… you prefer the eagles to keep McNabb because he chokes in the big game? The skins have to make a big game for that to matter to you… he torches you 2 games a year in those “not so big games.” Let me tell you what you want as a skins fan. You want Buffalo or the Raiders to get McNabb so St. Louis picks Bradford with the first and you can get a OL in the 4th. If St. Louis does trade for McNabb then say hello to Sam Bradford behind a terrible O-Line….. good luck with that

    Davis announced he was deciding whether or not he was keeping Cable as Head Coach; the team won’t officially say he has been retained…
    Jamarcus R is the WORST QB in the league and is scheduled to make over $9mill.
    Davis did NOTHING about the worst offensive line in the NFL
    Last year’s 1st round pick DHB is guaranteed $18mill and can’t catch the ball.
    The Raiders will lose double digits AGAIN in 2010. McNabb is PRAYING he doesn’t go to Oakland just like Seymour last year.

    So the ‘fRaiders would spend what, like $20 mil in salaries on QB’s alone for one year? Sorry, don’t buy it. And who would ever take Russell in a trade? I mean, really? Don’t be so stupid they’d ever be able to trade him to another pro team. USFL maybe, not NFL.

    its funny how most eagles front office people want McNabb gone but most front office people of other teams are not interested in having him.

    ________________________________
    Thank you for bringing that up!!
    @ Critias: yes it was, in fact, a coincidence that Kolb threw for over 300 yards in his first two starts. 50+ attempts vs. Saints in an ass whiping and then he played the pitiful Chiefs. Certainly not like they planned that out AFTER DNabb was cheap shotted by that bastard in Carolina….
    ________________________________
    @ Florio: You have to be getting some serious coin from GE, so why not do a little more research and stop being played. Eagles might trade Kolb to Raiders for the “infamous 1st pick in the 2nd round.”
    Stop the insanity and just apologize for not being able to figure out a damn thing the Eagles are going to do.

    So to the Redskins fan, he would really prefer CAMPBELL over McNabb lol. McNabb has been in more big games then Campbell has been in the league. Redskins are subpar at best and haven’t left the NFC east Basement in years. DMac’s accuracy isn’t the best but he gets us where we need to be…Don’t for a second think the only reason we ever lost the big games was cause of McNabb…..No recievers for 90% of his tenure…a Screen Running back who can’t run between the tackles. So he did what he could. Kolb is a bust and will be, Watch what we wish for Eagles fans.

    Wow, a Redskin fan piping up. I have not seen or heard a Redskin fan since around 2001.
    Does Washington even sill have a team?

  91. mzezulak says: Mar 25, 2010 6:01 PM

    How about trading former probowlers Mcnabb for Bulger? the change of teams might resurrect both players careers. At least Bulger made it to the SB.

  92. ampats says: Mar 25, 2010 6:05 PM

    Keep Jamarcus as the starting QB and forget about McNabb.
    Signed,
    1 st round draft pick 2011

    Niners Rule: Oakland is where NFL careers go to die. Remember a guy named Jim Plunket who left New England went to Oakland and won 2 Super Bowls. How many Super Bowls have the Niners been in since Steve Young?
    Anybody is better than Russell he is a BUST.

  94. KingOkra says: Mar 25, 2010 6:17 PM

    McNabb needs to find a way to stay in Phily for 1 more year then slip into #4′s shoes in Minnesota and play with AP and then win the bowl he wants soooo badly.

    Face it, the Vikings have blown 4 changes to “win the bowl”. They’ll never win one, with or without McNabb. It’s the cruel circle of life. Learn to deal with it.

    Yeah, for the Bills fans ripping Ralph Wilson…
    …the day after he passes the Bills will be in LA.
    That man is your best friend, and the only thing keeping the team in that town. So maybe show some respect, while you still have a team to cheer for.

  98. Thingamajig says: Mar 25, 2010 6:32 PM

    McNabb for Jamarcus straight across, then Vick can be his mentor.

  99. Mooch says: Mar 25, 2010 6:39 PM

    @Chadronald40
    Look, I know you like McNabb and that’s fine. But why rip Westbrook to prop up your argument that McNabb is blameless?
    You shame yourself with that statement. C’mon, you’re better than that.
    Look at Westbrook’s #’s – rushing as well as receiving. You just really trashed the best all-purpose back this side of Marshall Faulk.
    And I could say the same for McNabb – I bet he has a higher % of his passing yardage from YAC than any other QB in history with over 30k career yards. And Westbrook did take many of those 5 yard passes for 80 (Minnesota playoff game). All I can say is that, minus Westbrook, this past year was an embarrassment.
    Just be fair, OK?

    Sorry, bro nittanylion0. Did not want to dis you since I’m a State Penner also. Loved State College. You’re right, though, Eagles front office seems to be swirling around. I mean they signed Vick off the street without even working him out, now they picked up his bonus when to me Kolb is really the QB they should be handing things over to. How about Vick to the Raiders? That’s one I really think would satisfy Al’s lust for supposed playmakers and get rid of some dead weight on Philly’s roster.

  106. Strahan92 says: Mar 25, 2010 7:33 PM

    Joe in Toronto is right. McNabb’s throws do end up the ground when it counts.

  107. epping16 says: Mar 25, 2010 7:35 PM

    I’m calling it right now
    49ers send : 1 of their 1st round picks and their 2nd rounder
    Eagles send: Mcnabb and their 1st rounder!
    9ers will improve greatly and keep their 2 first round picks! They could be dangerous!

    Ha ha!! Gruden does not want to coach that red headed step child of the NFL team! When Tom Cable is your coach that says alot about the organization.
    Cmon, give the Raiders a break.
    Gruden should of never been traded.
    Even if you dont AL, you could agree on this.
    McNabb would give Raider fans some hope.

  111. Opie says: Mar 25, 2010 10:37 PM

    I’m sorry, but ‘Smokey and the Bandit’ was on the other night and all I can picture in my head is Al Davis (as Buford T. Justice) & Cable (as his son Dummy) yelling at Goodell,
    “I am in hot purrrrsuit of the Bandit!”

    Yet another note: why would the Raiders trade their All-Pro CB? Scratch that, no one can make sense of that. Why would the Eagles trade two All-Pro’s for one?!?

  112. Roaming Raider says: Mar 25, 2010 10:47 PM

    Funny how some of you haters haven’t ever had your team win the super bowl. Just bc we are in a slump you think Al is “senile” or crazy or dumb. PLEASE!
    Make the trade Al and we will win the division this year. The dischargers are master choke artists that are too cheap to resign their best players. The pony’s over-performed last year and wont have nearly the record this year. And the queefs, well they are the queefs.
    Suck it raider haters, we are on the rise!

  113. birdfan5 says: Mar 26, 2010 12:21 AM

    As a diehard eagles fan, one of the greatest football organizations in the league, will be very upset to see Donny go. He gave us ten years of exciting football. Even tho we never won it, SH@T!!!, we were very close for many years. Which is better than going 3-13 every year like most of your teams.
    And no, most eagles fans dont want him to go, but if they get an early 1st round pick for him, which probably wont happen… its a smart football move with don only having one year left. And Mcnabb usually wasnt the reason we lost big games. If you watched the superbowl, you would have seen him scrambling for his life every other down. The oline played like crap and we only lost by 3 to one of the greatest qbs ever. And he should have been in a second SB recently but our D couldnt hold of the cardinals in the last minute of the game.For people to trash Mcnabb, its gotta because you were just tired of seeing him in the NFC title game. Go BIRDS!!!!!!!!!!!

  114. devilkin360 says: Mar 26, 2010 1:54 AM

    Doesnt ‘Old Al’ know that Vick’s 40 time is still much faster than DMAC?
    OK so to this moron lest’s just be honest and say…. Noone cares about the 40 time of a qb ….we care about accuracy, arm strength, we dont care how fast he runs. Secondly, even if the 40 speed of vick was as godly as you think (the word think is used loosely in your case) you also have to remember that vick has always been mediocre and Mcnabb has playes more than 4 downs in the last 2 years. Oakland would be blessed to have mcnabb… of course if al davis was ruled inept and they got rid of russell that would be awesome too….we will see what happens….either way….dont post that any qb is better because of his “40″ time….those stats are for cb’s ss fs rb fb wr noone really gives a damn a bout a qb’s 40 time

  115. Big Tex says: Mar 26, 2010 7:00 AM

    What 2 All-Pro’s would the Eagles be trading? McSoup has never been All-Pro and his days of being anything other than a replacement Pro Bowl player are over..

  116. Mooch says: Mar 26, 2010 10:13 AM

    Uh, I think the guy was joking about the 40 times. You know, Al’s love for the deep ball and down the field speed. Sometimes, it seems like the only thing he focuses on (see” Heyward-Bey, Darius).
    It was actually kind of amusing. If you got it.
    I also refused to recognize McNabb’s All-Pro status this past year. If 4 more guys dropped out, I’d have been named the starter. I actually fund it embarrassing for Donovan that he reveled in what has becomes an exhibition for younger guys with nothing better to do. It was very “Crash Davis-ey”.

  117. Slam254 says: Mar 26, 2010 10:32 AM

    Roaming Raider speaks for all Raiders’ myopic morons…
    EVERY OFFSEASON they proclaim:
    “we’re just in a slump”
    “come on Al, sign _______ (fill-in the blank )”
    “the refs are out to screw us”
    WORST RECORD this Century. THAT’S a fact.
    Everything else is nonsense.
